The servers were very friendly and service was great but the food is very spicy. The price was reasonable. The place was very chilly and we had to keep our coats on.

Portions are shrinking and brisket is fattier than before. Server was nice but she was a little dingy. Got the wrong side dish and so did the neighbor and she blamed it on the kitchen. We don't go half as much as we did before.

Ever since Red Hot and Blue left Frederick, I have yearned for a good BBQ restaurant and though some have come and gone, Famous Dave's was a welcome sight. Great Pulled Pork/Brisket combo and great seasonings. On weekends, come early. The lines form quickly.
